There is not much to see in this place, it's just one collection of old stones you have seen in several places before.

Huge site, having a guide useful as signs not that informative, room with models in was useful. One remaining pillar was particularly iconic, don't forget your camera

There are so many archeological ruins near Pythagoriou but this was the only site where you paid to enter (closed on Monday). There was so much of it but it was not that impressive. The tea room was very good.

I'd hoped to see a bit of ancient Greek history here, like you see a lot in Rome. but the only thing is one big stone, a lot of smaller stones and that's it. and you have to pay for it too. Not worth the money.

easy to imagine walking the "sacred way" to the temple from Pythagoria as the site is so atmospheric. There is very little shade though so go early!

Very interesting. Site larger than expected. Well marked out. Informative signs. Can get very hot in summer months.

My partner and I walked the 7 kilometers from Pythogorio to Heraion, which took us 45 minutes (in considerable heat) - great if you like walking and are fairly strong, though I would recommend car or coach if you are not. Some might say there is not much to see, ruins-wise, and it can be disappointing, but I disagree. The... More

Temple of Hera is a must, if you have a minimum of historic interest. If you stay in Pythagorion, you can combine with a great bicycle-route along the sea. Turn left about one kilometre outside Pythagorion, go through Potokaki and further on the cycle path.

The single standing column is very impressive. It's worth making a quick visit just to get the feel of the place as it was.
